Pizza Theater Practice Tracks – copy

Since we only have 1 hour of rehearsal time per week (and we have spring break approaching), I have uploaded the rehearsal tracks to the songs that we are performing for our Pizza Theater Concert. Please have your daughter only listen to the voice track with her part to solidify notes and rhythms. Once we are more confident in these notes and rhythms, they can challenge themselves by singing with the other tracks.

Part 1







Part 2







Dream Keeper

Part 1
Part 2

Fight Song

Part 1
Part 2

Over the Rainbow

Part 1
Part 2

We are also doing a unison song of Almost There, which you can find a video on Youtube.

Here’s the link:

Please encourage your daughter to practice or at least listen to their practice tracks. If they can spend at least 30 minutes a day listening to their music, they will be better prepared and we can work on more than just the notes and rhythms of the music.

If your daughter is performing an additional act and would like to work with Ms. Gravesmill before rehearsal, please feel free to reach out to her.
